Is there a utility that will let me turn off the display and turn it back on only by pressing a specific key?
I have tried 'Turn Off LCD' and few other utilities, but all of them turn the display back on when any key is pressed. I want the display to turn on when I press my specified key combination only, and NOT at any other keyboard/mouse activity.

Thank You!

Yes I already tried that. But it turns back on the display with any keyboard/mouse movement. As stated in the question, I want it to be locked to a key, so the display only turns back on when I press that key. Is there anyway to make it so the display turns on by only pressing fn+f7 again?

I actually thought it worked that way which is why I mentioned it. It does on my old crapbooks.

The issue obviously is that Windows default behavior is to turn the display on when it gets mouse or keyboard activity. I mean I see lots of utilities here

but none describe exactly the behavior you want them to.

I stumbled across this when I was looking for powershell code to stop windows from intercepting keyboard strokes and turning your monitor on - basically what the programmer below did;

I know! My previous Lenovo laptop worked that way, so I got used to it. But now after buying this new laptop, I found that it works differently for this one..
Thank you for the research, I will check the link and let you know.
